Peter Ho Davies Peter Ho Davies
Peter Ho Davies is the director of the prestigious graduate program in creative writing at the University of Michigan. In a happy irony, Granta magazine named Davies a "Best of Young British Novelists" even before he had published a novel. The Welsh Girl, his highly anticipated first novel, is the story of a remote farming community in northern Wales that is drawn into the waning days of World War II when the British establish a prison camp for German soldiers there.

Anchee Min Anchee Min
Following the national bestseller Empress Orchid, the dramatic story of the woman who presided over the last decades of the Ch'ing Dynasty, comes Anchee Min's latest novel, The Last Empress. Tzu Hsi, or Empress Orchid, as readers have come to know her, makes the dramatic transition from a strong-willed, instinctive young woman to a wise and politically savvy leader. Library Journal calls Empress Orchid "essential for all fiction collections."

Ann Cummins Ann Cummins
Ann Cummins is the author of Red Ant House, a San Francisco Chronicle bestseller and Best Book of the Year. In her new novel, Yellowcake, Cummins stakes a claim to rich new literary territory with a story of intersecting cultures and cheating fate in the American Southwest. Finely crafted, deeply felt, and bursting with heartache and hilarity, Yellowcake is a moving story of how everyday people sort their way through life, with all its hidden hazards.

Howard Norman Howard Norman
Howard Norman has been nominated twice for the National Book Award and has received the Lannan Award for fiction, a Guggenheim fellowship, and a Whiting Award. He is the author of five previous novels, including The Bird Artist and The Northern Lights. Devotion is an elegantly constructed, never sentimental examination of love: romantic love (and its flip side, hate); filial love at its most tender; and love for the open spaces of Nova Scotia, which are very much at the center of this deeply felt novel.
